Card for a Friend, Special Celebrations, Strong & Beautiful, Happiness Blooms Designer Series Paper, Stargburst Punch, Classic Label Punch, Tailored Tag Punch

Hello Friends!

Wouldn’t it be nice to send a card to a friend to let them know just how much their friendship means to you?  Well, that’s what todays card is all about.

 I made this card for a friend that did a lot for me when I was recovering from my full knee replacement.  I used the greeting and sentiment from the Special Celebration and Strong & Beautiful Stamp Sets.  The designer series paper I used is from the Happiness Blooms Designer Series Pack which has bold and bright florals on the front and all-purpose patterns on the back.  

The colors that I chose are Lovely Lipstick, Pineapple Punch and Night of Navy.  The Lovely Lipstick card base was a little too plain for me, so I embossed the front card base with the Subtles Dynamic Textured Embossing Folder and then added a piece of Pineapple Punch and a piece of the designer series paper to layer on top of the base.    The finishing touch was to use three different punches i.e., Starburst, Tailored Tag and the Classic Label Punches to pop up the greeting.

A strip of Happiness Blooms Designer Series Paper dresses up the inside of the card which coordinates with the front.  Don’t you just  love the sentiment I chose for inside the card?  It is from the Strong & Beautiful Stamp Set that has many lovely sentiments not only for a friend but for a mother or even a daughter.  

It’s always good to have a variety of sentiments in your collection, and this is one you don’t want to pass by.


  • Lovely Lipstick Card Base –  8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ scored a 4 1/4″
  • Pineapple Punch Front Layer – 2 1/4″ x 5 1/4″ and Inside Layer 4″ x 5 1/4″
  • Happiness Blooms Designer Series Paper Front Layer – 2″ x 5 ” and for the Inside Strip – 1 3/4″ x 4″
  • Scraps of Pineapple Punch and Night of Navy were used for the greeting and to punch out the 3 labels.

It’s always nice to surprise a friend with a card for always being there for you through good times and bad.  Cards are powerful and will make anyone feel special, so make up some cards and send them to your friends.  Even though periodically, you may tell them how much you appreciate  all they do for you, it’s  nice to send a card to  reassure them of your appreciation, and to brighten their day!
